RANKINGS

demo-reconocimientos
The seven-lawyer energy and natural resources practice at this esteemed Spanish firm, which has six offices nationally and branches in London and Brussels, has a solid reputation in the field. It is primarily found advising on medium-sized deals, and long-standing clients include EDF, Endesa and Red Eléctrica. It can draw on the full-service capabilities of the firm to provide multidisciplinary services, but focuses mainly on providing advice on the regulatory and administrative aspects of the energy sector. Not surprisingly, the group has recently been active in renewable energy, particularly concerning solar photovoltaic plants in Spain. Most of its mandates of the past year were national but it has also represented certain international players, such as the Abu Dhabi-based International Petroleum Investment on its acquisition of Santander and Unión Fenosa's shares in the Spanish-listed company CEPSA. Clients have enthusiastic praise for “highly intelligent” partner Carlos Vázquez Cobos and say that he is “extremely knowledgeable, hard-working and efficient” and “always looks at issues from a positive angle, coming up with solutions rather than dwelling on problems.” He spent several years working in the public administration prior to entering private practice, giving him a superb understanding of how the relevant government bodies function. He has also built up an “expert knowledge of energy and environmental regulations.”
